MSSISS 2024 – The 2024 Michigan Student Symposium for Interdisciplinary Statistical Sciences
UMICH Central Campus

March 28th – 29th @ Rackham Building


The Michigan Student Symposium for Interdisciplinary Statistical Sciences (MSSISS) is an annual event organized by graduate students in the Biostatistics, Electrical Engineering & Computer Science (EECS), Industrial & Operations Engineering (IOE), Statistics and Survey and Data Science (MPSDS) departments at the University of Michigan.

The goal of this symposium is to create an environment that allows communication across related fields of statistical sciences and promotes interdisciplinary research among students and faculty. It encourages students to present their work, share insights, and expose them to diverse applications of statistical sciences. Though hosted by five departments, we extend our invitation to students from all departments across the University to present their statistical research in the form of an oral presentation or a poster. It also provides an excellent environment for interacting with students and faculty from other areas of statistical research on campus.

MSSISS is an opportunity for interdisciplinary research and discussion across the fields of statistical sciences. Calling all graduate students (as well as talented undergraduates)! Come along, present your work, share insights, and learn about the diverse applications of statistical sciences.
